Dermaplaning is an exfoliating procedure, similar to microdermabrasion. This procedure involves exfoliating the epidermis and removing dead skin and fine hair (peach fuzz).
How Does Dermaplaning Work?
Dermaplaning is most commonly performed on the face to gently lift away dead skin cells, remove fine hairs and leave your skin youthful and glowing. It is recommended prior to skincare treatments or as a maintenance treatment in order to sustain healthy cellular turnover and restore skin health.
Dermaplaning triggers the cell regeneration process and can improve the appearance of things like acne scarring and hyperpigmentation.
When Will I See Results?
The effects of the procedure are instant. Right away you will notice a smooth appearance and a radiant glow.
What About Downtime?
Patients can return to work or normal activities right away (avoiding direct sun exposure), but skin may be red, dry, and swollen. Over the next several days, results will begin to emerge. Following dermaplaning, the deeper layers of the skin are more exposed, so patients should continue to follow a robust skin care regime and use SPF 50 to protect the skin from sun damage.
Dermaplaning is a great option for those who want to improve the tone and texture of their skin without the irritation from chemical peels and the expense of laser skin resurfacing.
